As she grows older, her parents led her to join the school's therapy session with Gregory Burton once a week. They had gotten along pretty well and had become lovers after Sandy has started working. Currently working on a missing person's case, she was due to meet Jack Ruttle at Limerick but somehow got lost herself while jogging near the woods.
Sandy has miraculously ended up at a place called Here where all the missing people and things have gone to. They have created a life there with many different communities, in a world of their own and not able to leave that place even if they wanted to. Though overwhelmed, Sandy managed to meet a few of these people who were in her case files and was able to update them indirectly of their loved ones.
Due to Sandy's obsession, she has finally found her closure and letting go of her obsession slowly but surely. She has also realised what her obsessions have caused her to lose and it opened up her eyes to the reality in front of her. Her main trigger button was Jenny-May Butler and upon finding her, Sandy was able to reflect and let go, her final closure.
This book truly reflects on the obsessiveness of some human being, how they can overcome it and eventually letting go. It is not an easy feat especially when it comes to mental OCD, definitely a hard habit to break. Well, this is just my thought as this book sums up about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder for me LOL!
I did enjoy the plots, nicely written and paced well. Though it's predictable midway onward, it was still entertaining but it had me speed read towards the end. Well, I just wanted to know if she goes back to Gregory and skipped the fillers LOL! All in all, a good read lah!

Today is Pa's 4th death anniversary. We had travelled to Cameron Highlands last weekend, our yearly 'pilgrimage', to pay our respect to dad. After 4 years, I still missed him so much.
Pa, hope you have a great after life with my father in law 😢 I love you and miss you so much 😢

Graves approaches Credence Barebone, Mary Lou's adopted son, and offers to free him from his abusive mother in exchange for his finding the host of an Obscurus, a dark, destructive force inadvertently manifested by young magical children who conceal their powers. The force can be unleashed during periods of anger and stress; Graves believes that it has caused several mysterious destructive incidents around the city.
After Tina and Newt find Jacob and the suitcase, Tina takes them to her apartment and introduces them to Queenie, her Legilimen sister. Queenie and Jacob are mutually attracted, though wizards are forbidden to marry No-Majs. Newt takes Jacob inside his magically-expanded suitcase and persuades him to help search for the missing creatures. After re-capturing the Niffler and an Erumpent (a rhinoceros-like creature with deadly liquid in its horn), they re-enter the suitcase, which Tina takes to MACUSA. Officials arrest them, believing one of Newt's creatures to be responsible for killing Senator Henry Shaw Jr. Newt's suitcase and creatures are to be destroyed and Jacob's memory will be obliviated. Graves interrogates Newt and Tina and accuses Newt of conspiring with the infamous dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald. Newt and Tina are immediately sentenced to death, but they escape and meet up with Queenie and Jacob; the foursome then capture the last of the creatures.

JK Rowling can never go wrong when it comes to magic. Being a Harry Potter fan, I did not expect any lesser from her but I totally did not expect so much more! I thought magic in Rowling's world is limited but lo and behold, it is far more than that. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has proven to me that there are much, much more and has added another level of realm into the fantasy world. This movie is written and produced by Rowling herself hence the better, more fluid plots. She has even confirmed there will be another 4 more movies... yay for the Potterfans!!!
Eddie Redmayne is a gifted actor. He's not stereotyped as a particular character and he was perfect as Newt Scamander. He's now one of my favourite actor and I sure hope he's back in the next 4 movies! Of course, the other casts were as good and hoped that they will be back in the next movie. The surprising one was a sudden cameo from Johnny Depp! I didn't know that he's part of this franchise!
Anyway, the overall movie was awesome especially the special magical animals and beasts, though CGI-created, were so mind-blowing! I adore Frank the most LOL! It was truly an amazing movie to watch! Now I can't wait to add the book and screenplay into my library *fingers crossed*

Overall, it was not as captivated and unrealistically captured hence it was not as enthralling as it should. James' Victor seemed unnatural. Daniel's Igor looked forcefully hunched. The costumes and set designs were vintage pretty but that's about it. Though categorised as horror, it wasn't and it felt more dramatic. A movie to pass time, nothing more so I guess I just had to read the book then.
My rating: 2.5/5
IMDb rating: 6/10
Director: Paul McGuigan
Casts: James McAvoy, Daniel Radcliffe, Jessica Brown Findlay, Andrew Scott, Freddie Fox
Category: a 2015 American science fiction fantasy horror film based on contemporary adaptations of Mary Shelley's 1818 novel Frankenstein
